Our Mission

The Third Annual U of D Jesuit Invitational took place on Monday, July 16, 2018 at Country Club of Detroit in Grosse Pointe Farms. It was a first-class experience for our sponsors and guests. The tournament day included the traditional tee-off breakfast, 18 holes of golf on CCD’s championship course, a full lunch spread and an array of beverages and beer on the course, followed by a post-round cocktail reception and strolling dinner on the beautiful CCD terrace overlooking the 18th green.

Our Mission
More than 33% of our students are on some type of financial aid, and through this event, we raised more than $25,000 in scholarship last year with the help of our sponsors. This year, we hope that the support of sponsors will prove to give us the opportunity to put a young man through UDJ for four years. Your financial support means a great deal to us, and we hope you can join us in support of educating Men For Others For The Greater Glory of God.

Last year, the U of D Jesuit Invitational Executive Committee and more than 40 generous sponsors teamed up with U of D Jesuit and helped us raise over $27,000 for scholarships at the Country Club of Detroit. We had a great event with fantastic weather and very generous constituents.
